Our most recent inspections by the Diocese of Westminster and Ofsted took place in November 2013, and their reports can be seen by clicking on the names, along with the previous Ofsted report conducted in 2008. The 2013 reports described the school as ‘Good with Outstanding features’ and some of the main points are quoted below.
“The high expectations leaders and teachers have for every student to achieve their best academically and personally are a notable strength of the school.”
“Behaviour in and around the school is often impeccable as students understand the importance and value of positive behaviour towards each other and to all adults without any form of prejudice.”
“The dedicated headteacher, senior and middle leaders and the governing body work well together to secure improvements in all aspects of the school’s work.”
“Students’ attitudes to learning, behaviour and all aspects of school life are exemplary.”
“The proportion of students across the range of attainment making good progress in English and in mathematics is well above average.”
“Relationships between teachers and students are excellent. Students try their best; they are attentive and a very positive climate for learning is evident across the school.”
We are very proud of what we have achieved at Finchley Catholic High School and we will continue to strive for excellence.
